Pacific Heights (1990)

Yuppie paranoia about a sinister lodger who won't be dislodged from his apartment in a renovated Victorian mansion in San Francisco. Hammering and sawing noises, along with an army of cockroaches, emanate from within. What's he up to? A nice slow buildup; a not-so-nice, long-drawn-out windup. Michael Keaton, fresh from ... (R)

Pacific Rim (2013)

Director Guillermo Del Toro goes for the gold, offering up a robots-punch-monsters movie tailor-made for the international market: modeled after Japanese anime, set largely in Hong Kong, featuring Chinese, Russian, and Australian heroes operating giant robots named with a German word, and offering a Brit (Idris Elba) as its emotional ...

Pacific Rim: Uprising (2018)

Guillermo Del Toro’s 2013 original (well, first, anyway) Pacific Rim was a genre love letter. The sequel is an exemplar, a big-budget actioner that goes about its bang-up business with skill and speed. (The only thing more breakneck than the pacing is director and co-writer Steven S. DeKnight’s frequency of ... (PG-13)

The Pack (2016)

Everything is more dangerous in Australia. We know this. There's probably a species of poisonous goldfish living in the Great Barrier Reef. So no one should be surprised when dogs start terrorizing an Australian farmer and his family. Nick Robertson directs. (NR)

None stars

The Pack (1978)

An antisocial mongrel with a tattered coat and a vicious snarl exercises a bad influence on his canine confreres, and creates a serious dog delinquent problem on a dark and unpleasant resort island. Writer-director Robert Clouse doesn't marvel over the unnaturalness of dogs who behave much like Hollywood Indians (they ... (R)

The Package (1989)

Crudely effective political thriller. (Plot Formula 1-B: the military can't sit by and watch a couple of Gorbachev and Bush look-alikes sign a disarmament pact; they've got to assassinate somebody.) The storyline is decently complicated, but the pace (to say nothing of the camerawork) is too pell-mell to take much ... (R)

Paddington (2015)

"We've found it! Another beloved children's story to repackage! Everybody loves CGI bears, right? They live in the cozy heart of the uncanny valley!" (PG)

None stars

Paddington 2 (2018)

It may be difficult to find a review of director and co-writer Paul King’s followup to his first take on Michael Bond’s émigré bear from darkest Peru that does not employ some form of the word “charming.” This is right and just, and the achievement is surely harder than the ... (PG)

Padmaavat (2018)

Set in medieval Rajasthan, Queen Padmavati is married to a noble king and they live in a prosperous fortress with their subjects until an ambitious Sultan hears of Padmavati's beauty and forms an obsessive love for the Queen of Mewar. (NR)
